viii pp[1] pp4-354 First edition, a presentation copy from 1798, with the foldout map and frontispiece of Elgin Cathedral present. Contemporary tree calf with a red morocco spine label and some slightly erratic neo-classical decoration to the spine. Otherwise without adornment, a little rubbed to edges and slight cracking at the head of the upper hinge between spine and board but binding remains quite sound. Presentation inscription on the first free endpaper from the year - perhaps month - of publication, April 1798 to 'Major Hugh Stourtoune from his Much obliged and Humble Servant William Millar'. (Born in 1765 Millar was an alumnus of Glasgow university who had a successful military career in the West Indies, rising to become Inspector General of Artillery in 1827.) The book's foldout map has old tape repairs to the verso and a couple of closed tears but is attractively coloured. Occasional browning to paper stock but a very good copy, collated and complete.
